I thought the final was excellent, not only because that both finalists were excellent but the fitting together of the themes. Ok the two battles were obviously apart from each other, but we got the english archers and the french Oriflamme under a hail of arrows.
Excellent !! :-) :-) :thumbup: :thumbup:

It starts to become a little bit boring, isn´t it??? ;-)
Congratulations to the master, a very fine work, indeed. Cannot be done better. Not only painting and scene, but also the photograph and the presentation.
What comes next???

Well done Thomas, it was an excellent piece of work that you did, as was Mr Willers. A very tight final which is what we hope for every time.

Nice job again Tom...Nice set of figures and dio

I ahve to admit I did almost not vote for Crecy as the English didnt use Stakes at the battle of Crecy , but I think that would have being just picky

anyway good job again

Really? In different interpretations of the story I read "they builded obstacles before battle", could mean holes in the ground, small trenches or stakes or something? :scratch:

But OK, perhaps I have to rename the diorama....from "Crécy" to "Welsh archers of the 100YW".

Thanks for voting everybody! And cheers to the other contestants! Especially Thomas Willers for sharing the last round. :wave:

Another excellent final

Well done Thomas :thumbup: Whilst you win the Golden Brush none of us win for guessing it was your entry from the start :?

Your style is unmistakeable and of such a high standard. Some may find it boring you win all the time but I thank you for pushing the standards and challenging the skill levels of the rest of us :mrgreen:

To the runner up Willers (my personal favourite entry) such a very dynamic vignette that with only two figures conveyed so much drama congratulations and better luck next time :thumbup:

Cheers

Congrats Thomas, your style is so typical that is immediately recognizable, yet it is never boring :thumbup:
I also liked the weather changing over Crécy between the 1st and the 2nd picture :-D

Thank you all for your kind words!

@Francesco: Yes, but the weather (not at Crécy but in Neukirchen) changed rapidly while shooting the photos. Between the photos are just a few minutes.
